However, root caps
were heavily colonised by bacteria, and contact points with remnant roots had more filamentous bacteria than other regions.
An ultrastructural study of the inhibition of mucilage secretion in the wheat root cap
by aluminium, Pp 779-787 in Plant-soil interactions at low pH (R.
The root cap
is located at the tip of the root and consists of several layers of cells that protect the root as it grows through the soil.
However, the growth of root part was more inhibited by the extract, showing root cap
necrosis, early secondary root formation, gravitropic inversion and atrophy in all weeds.
In the root cap
cells, Golgi bodies are sensitive to aluminum.

In general, root caps
of many plants are not colonized by bacteria (Foster & Bowen, 1982).
1A) were examined and photographed in root cap
(1), outer quiescent center (QC) cells (2), and inner QC cells (3) (Fig.
This differed from the untreated seedling root cap
Greaves & Darbyshire, 1972; Oades, 1978; Foster, 1982) as has the secretion from root cap
cells (see Rougier, 1981; Rougier & Chaboud, 1985).
It was also reported that WGA-B mRNA is expressed in the root caps
We developed a bioassay that has allowed us to determine that chemical compounds exuding from the host's roots, root caps
, and root border cells induce fungal hyphal branching," Nagahashi explains.
